I wouldn't mind seeing a 2nd Gen Inspired 2016

... or Chevrolet paying homage to any of the previous versions.. I know many want something totally different and forward.. But what I don't want is a Camaro that doesn't look like a Camaro.. With a car as iconic as the Camaro I feel like you have to tip toe and make subtle progressions with the styling.. So going back is not a bad idea.. Remember GM tried forward thinking with the GTO. I personally liked it but many said it looked more like a Grand-Am on steroids than a GTO.. A GTO inspired from the early 70's would have won the hearts of many...so these renderings or sketches below I would be very happy with!!!

I rather see a new Camaro like the one in the new T4 movie. Hope the next gen will be offered in right hand drive too.

I have to say no, when they went from the '69 model to the '70 model they killed the car.

It still needs to look like a Camaro, but I hope we see a progression of the current design. Like the C7 for instance.

Don't do a Ford and soften it up to much. Also...give it its own personality...don't make it look like your family sedan.

Yeah, it only took them 33 years after they killed it to stop making it.

And it was the longest running and I believe best selling generation.

Ok just to be clear the GTO was a "quickly" derived coupe version of the Opel Omega which was also the ill fated Cadillac Catera. It was never styled, it was a contrived result. Lutz fell in love with it and it was brought here as a stop gap. There were greater plans for Pontiac that were never realized.

That is all.

IMO, the third generation was totally redesigned from the ground up. There weren't a bunch of styling cues from the previous generations, but yet it "looked" like a Camaro (same thing going from 1st to 2nd gens). That's what I'd like to see for the sixth generation, a brand new design that still identifies it as our Camaro.

Give me this one drawn in red right above right now with the LT1!!!! Damn that is sexy! One of the few drawings I have seen that actually don't make me want to puke! My 3rd gen was still the best looking to me but I always liked the lines on the 2nd gens. My 2002 was ugly but it was a missile!
